SWAN CREEK FALL COLOR KAYAK TOUR is just around the corner!

The Second annual Swan Creek Fall Color Kayak Tour will be Sunday October 18th (rain date 25th), at the Swan Creek Landing, 210 S. Erie Street in the Farmers Market parking lot.

This year due to the schedule of the Metro Parks staff , at this time they will not be available to bring kayaks to this event, BUT that could change so please check back periodically to see if that changes.
also the 3 NWORR kayaks are unavailable.

If you have an extra kayak and want to share, you are welcome to post it here!

We will be leaving the dock by 11:30 am, starting to launch kayaks at 11:00, hopefully paddling the 3.5 miles up stream just past Western Ave., taking 3 + hours round trip.

Don’t forget to bring water and to wear your Personal Flotation Device (LIFE JACKET).
